CCNA Team 6: Nutrition, Exercise, and Lifestyle (Webinar Style)

“Recent studies have provided very strong support to the effect that disorders, such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure negatively affect brain health. Sedentary lifestyle and poor diet – clearly – increase our risk for dementia. And, interestingly, the combination of both sedentary lifestyle and poor diet is worse than either alone. … Up to half the cases of Alzheimer’s disease may be the result of diet and lifestyle-associated disorders. We have a real opportunity here to lower the burden of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, in the Canadian population.”
